As a result, wide ranging and powerful laws have been enacted in countries around the world requiring financial organizations of all kinds to take concrete steps to ensure that their services are not used to process illicit funds. Failure to comply with these laws even inadvertently can have disastrous consequences including civil and criminal sanctions, reputational damage and financial penalties.
